Social assistance is intended to integrate, not exclude

you Can feed with 5 Swiss francs per day in Switzerland, sufficient and healthy? Yes, my apparently those politicians who hold the current approaches to social assistance for the much too generous. Would you have asked, the amount for the basic needs of a 30 percent cut, there would be a four-person family per Person just as much for food and drinks, as a Sandwich costs. The family spends more for food, lack of money for clothes or for Busbillett.

The social assistance device politically under more pressure, because more and more people must permanently from your life. In addition to single mothers, migrants with low qualifications are always dependent more frequently in older long-term unemployed on social assistance. In addition, there are fewer and fewer affordable homes, and the health insurance is always more expensive. Therefore, the cost social assistance, although in Switzerland, statistically full employment. You must pay for these social costs, the cantons and municipalities.


The social help is already measured today is almost. A single person must cover almost 1000 Swiss francs in the month of food, clothing, phone, Internet, electricity and other household needs. Who comes up with the idea, also with 600 francs a decent life was possible, buys never or is a cynic.

There are Disincentives in the System. So Skilled with gainful employment, earn low, often less than you get from the social assistance for the livelihood of an entire family. Also need to be paid for a low labor income taxes, while the social-exempt help control. The Problem here is not social assistance, but with the tax rates of the cantons, which collect on the existence of minimum taxes.

And there are social assistance recipients who refuse employment and training programs. But this uncooperative clients can and should cut the social welfare offices already today the basic needs of up to 30 percent.

A flat-rate cutbacks in the social welfare of the rich Switzerland is, however, unworthy of it. Which will be demoted to social assistance for emergency assistance, people are definitely out of the society pushed instead of integrated. Particularly felt the effects of this are the children whose parents are living on welfare.
